Dear Project Supporters, 

Thanks to your ongoing support multiple vocational trainees, like Hawa, are getting the training they need to empower themselves and become self-reliant, even now during COVID-19 because of your support.  

Hawa is a current vocational trainee and expresses why this opportunity to receive this training is important to her in this video- 

Hi, I am Hawa. I am attending the Baptist tailoring school. I am here to learn tailoring because I dropped out of school. I stopped going to school as a result of lack of financial support; I lost my mother and my father who was taking care of me had gone blind. My dad sent me here to learn tailoring because he is the only one whom I depend on for support and he alone cannot support me. I want to become a graduate so I can take care of myself and my family.

Our recurring donors are truly enabling on-going vocational training  If you haven't had the chance to sign up for a recurring donation yet, we warmly invite you to start a monthly recurring donation here. Even a few dollars a month will go a long way. 

Please also share this with your contacts and invite them to consider supporting this ongoing project. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at GlobalGiving@developafrica.org.

 

With great appreciation,

Amy & the Develop Africa Team

Dear Project Supporters, 

Thanks to your ongoing support multiple vocational trainees, like Kadija, are getting the training they need to empower themselves and become self-reliant, even now during COVID-19 because of your support.  

Kadija is a current vocational trainee and expresses her gratitude for the opportunity to receive this training in her video saying- 

Hello, my name is Kadija, a student at the Baptist Vocational training centre.  I dropped out of school after getting pregnant. After giving birth to my baby I decided to join the Baptist Vocational Tailoring School to empower myself.

Over the years, I have learned a lot. Now I am able to sew and take care of my family and myself. I thank God for that and I thank you for your support. After I get my certificate, I plan to open my tailoring shop and in return take care of my family.

Our recurring donors are truly enabling on-going vocational training  If you haven't had the chance to sign up for a recurring donation yet, we warmly invite you to start a monthly recurring donation here. Even a few dollars a month will go a long way.

Dear Project Supporters, 

 

Your ongoing support is greatly appreciated and is making a difference for students and teachers at the Baptist Vocational Training School. One of the teachers, Kumba tells us in this video how much your continued support means to her. 

 

My name is Kumba and I am a teacher at the Baptist Vocational training School. I teach art and crafts, as you can see this keyholder is one of my pieces.  This is another one I just started.  As a school, we are faced with many financial constraints. I want to teach the students more and show them quality art and how to decorate but need more teaching materials and financial support. 

We want to say a big thank you for all the support you have shown to the school. Thank you Develop Africa and donors, we appreciate you, and may God bless you. Thank you.

 

Our recurring donors are truly enabling on-going vocational training along with purchasing more supplies and teaching materials.   If you haven't had the chance to sign up for a recurring donation yet, we warmly invite you to start a monthly recurring donation here. Even a few dollars a month will go a long way.

 

Please also share this with your contacts and invite them to consider supporting this ongoing project.

Dear Project Supporters, 

As with many other areas around the world, social distancing and masks have become the new normal in Sierra Leone.  

Adama tells us in her video how she is able to attend the Vocational School thanks to the financial support she received. We also have the opportunity to learn how training is different right now due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Hello, my name is Adama.  I am an attendee at the Tailoring Center.   I decided to come here because of the financial support that I did not receive at my school. 

Because of the Corona Pandemic, we are not able to do the things that we did before.  Not everyone comes to school every day. The schedule is "one in and one out". 

We are so thankful that vocational trainees are still getting the training that they need - even now during COVID-19 because of your support. This empowering training is helping them become self-reliant. 

Our recurring donors are truly enabling on-going vocational training  If you haven't had the chance to sign up for a recurring donation yet, we warmly invite you to start a monthly recurring donation here. Even a few dollars a month will go a long way. 

Please also share this with your contacts and invite them to consider supporting this ongoing project.

Dear Project Supporters, 

We are so thankful that vocational trainees are getting the training that they need. This empowering training is helping them become self-reliant. 

Thanks in part to your generosity we provided support towards purchasing the following items - sewing materials, two drinking buckets, a cooling fan, a blackboard (for writing notes/instruction), and window curtains.  Funds also went towards some urgent needs - the painting of the classroom and maintenance of the restroom.

In her response, the proprietress expressed her gratitude.  The beneficiaries were also very appreciative of our support. 

Your donations are truly enabling on-going vocational training.  We could not do this without you.

We welcome your continued support in making a difference in the lives of more vocational students.

We invite you to start a monthly recurring donation here. Even a few dollars a month will go a long way.

Please also share this with your contacts and invite them to consider supporting this ongoing project. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at GlobalGiving@developafrica.org.

Thank you again for your diligent and generous support.

With great appreciation,

Amy & the Develop Africa Team
